    About

    I love the traditional Guernsey sweater, and as with most kids in the 70's we all had one, usually made from rough wool that itched. As an adult, I wanted a chunky Guernsey but could never find one that I liked, or one made with Marino that was in my price range. So, after a look about the old internet, I found Drops Admiral's Braid sweater. This was ideal, as I love cable work, and wanted something chunky and warm, this was my opportunity to have the sweater I always wanted.
